I have mentioned before that the areas of home decor and crafty projects are not my strengths. Whenever I actually come up with an idea to try and end up liking it, I so surprise myself.
A small bucket of seashells had been sitting on top of my clothes dryer since our last trip to the beach which was, um, let’s see, Labor Day weekend!! We found some really pretty shells that day and I thought using a shallow bowl to display them in would be a nice touch. Since I don’t have a clear, pretty shallow bowl, the shells continued to occupy the same space.
In my fall organizing blitz last week, I decided that something had to be done with the seashells. After spending several minutes rummaging through the cabinets for something to display them in, I remembered the tall goblets I store on a top shelf in the kitchen. We never drink out of them, but I have used them on the mantel at Christmas time by partially filling them with water and floating candles in them. Yes, the shells fit in one of the goblets perfectly!
Then came the task of determining where to put this new decoration. I made a spot between a couple of picture frames up on a ledge and I was so excited about how it looked.
A small, simple touch, to be sure, but a pretty container for some lovely shells that remind me of a wonderful summer!
See what others are displaying at Show and Tell Friday.

I love shells! They are even more special when you collected them yourself! I know it may sound crazy but when I look at them in my home, I can almost smell the ocean! Yours look so beautiful in the glass!
